Well yea it would make them the most money, but if they want to own a quality game then choose gta.

Can't you have quality and quantity? I know you can argue that we haven't really had it yet, but surely when a game gets the balance right it will be the most powerful game ever created?!

its actually because COD churns out yearly releases , more releases (in most cases) more money .. and COD's case ..yes

and at the end of the day... its all about the money!! (unfortunate for us gamers tho)

From a publisher/business standpoint its always better to make roughly $1B in sales on a yearly basis than waiting for a GTA release. So I can see where he got the crazy notion big business loves the cashflow.

GTA though is the game I would rather have on my résumé. CoD has its place and nothing against those that make/play it annually but GTA is just... more. Every game is an evolution of itself and not as much as a rehash (IMO).

One is easier to copy & paste for their yearly release than the other, which is the exact reason I haven't bought a COD game in years.

Most publishers would choose to own Mario. Think this through...
